Tina DeSilvio is just one of many parents treating their children's illnesses with marijuana. DeSilvio's daughter Jenna, ingests marijuana oil several times a day to control her violent seizures. 

DeSilvio, who once sat on the Franklin Township school board, says she will do whatever it takes to control Jenna's frequent and sometimes violent convulsions. Jenna, who wears a pink helmet, already takes two prescribed narcotics and as well as a third drug to treat a genetic brain disorder.
